A Cat's Life


I stand and meow or sit and purr
I take some time to preen my fur
Before I go to have a nap
In my basket or on a lap
Then it's time for me to eat
Some tinned meat or a crunchy treat
I play with the laces of your shoes
Before I have a timely snooze
Then off I chase a bird or mouse
Not straying far from the house
As soon I’ll need to eat again
And after will be sleeping then
Want to eat more, but no time for that
It’s not an easy life as the family cat

    A lovely poem regarding the murderous beast that despoils a garden's painstakingly cultivated borders and decimates the local bird population. (Report) Reply

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
